Review Blitz: CASANOVA by Emma Hart


Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000035_00027]

I loved him more than life.

He broke me and he didn't even know it.

I ran from him.

He didn't chase me.

He never needed to, because he knew I'd come back.

He was right.

Death brought me home to him.

Brett Walker.

Drop dead gorgeous and filthy-mouthed with a smile that turns saints to sinners.

A casanova to his core.

My ex-best friend.

And the bad boy whose reputation precedes him—the same reputation I'm tasked with turning to gold... Or so they think.



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wasn't sure how to rate this. For the most part I more than enjoyed it. However, I was thrown by the crux of the problem that existed between the main characters and I have to admit that it bothered me quite a bit.

Brett and his twin, Camille, were best friends with Lani in high school. Sometimes when a boy and a girl are friends, things can get complicated. Feelings can evolve. They have the potential to bring you pleasure, but can also dump you into pain. Hurt led to an 8-year separation, unanswered questions, and unresolved feelings.

Brett was a jerk with a heart of gold. Lani was a bit harder to read (much less stomach), but she was pretty sassy. Their chemistry was undeniable and their intimate scenes were scorchingly hot. Brett had one heck of a dirty mouth.

My only issue was the reason for the separation. Not so much the anguish each felt because that was understandable. I remember being an angst-filled teenager. It was more the fact that they held onto it for so long, especially Lani. At 26, I would think that she'd find a more constructive way to deal with the heartbreak she suffered at the age of 18.

Overall, this was an entertaining book that gave me a few laughs (thanks Aunt Bel), some tingles, and a warm heart. Oh and I wish there was more to the ending ;)
